USE A HACKSAW AND CUT A GROOVE IN THE HEAD OF THE BOLT AND USE A FLAT SCREWDRIVER TO REMOVE THEM... OR A GOOD OLD PAIR OF VISE GRIPS... ONCE YOU GET THEM OUT, REPLACE THEM WITH ALLEN HEAD BOLT TYPE INSTEAD BECAUSE ONCE YOU START JETTING AND MODIFY IT NEVER ENDS GOOD LUCK THE PREDATORIZER

Either that or drill them out ery carefully. Make sure and replace them. They are SOFT.

I used some 90 degree wire cutters, got a good squeeze and they came right out. If you are looking for allen head screws go to a John Deere dealer and order part # 19M7702

Do like the others suggested. A good compact Vise-grip (name brand plier, don't buy the imitations). Once you do replace them, you can get the allen head screws like the others said (Local hardware store), for added security, you can get them a bit longer, then use lockwashers. I also put a dab of blue loctite on the threads, run the screw down and back a few times to distribute the loctite. This not only helps hold the screw in place, but helps deter dissimilar metal corrosion. While you're at it, change out the 2 screws on the top of the carb. The ones holding down the diaphragm cover.

As they all have said...vise grips or cut a slot (I used a dremel with a cutting wheel) and use a flat head. Then change out for allen screw. Search the forum...several of us have posted the screw sizes previously

What size did you get? I am too lazy to take one out and measure!! lol

I got mine out rather easy so have not had to replace them yet!

But next time I wanna replace them as they are a little soft and will wear out from repeated removals.
